Alright, I give up. This game sucks, lol.
I don't hate it as much as I did ME3. Gameplay-wise, it's better. But the lack of impact with the decisions pretty much caused me not to even wanna progress anymore. I tried not to spoil myself at first, but the noise of the people made me decide to check the strategy guide (which I now regret buying). It's 100% true that the decisions mean absolutely nothing, even less so than the decisions made in ME3.
It's a good game for people who never played a ME game before, but I can't really justify anyone picking this game up at full price with a straight face. Maybe for multiplayer, but I haven't touched that one yet. After I do check it out, I plan on selling this game on eBay/Amazon. I only give it somewhat of a pass because it's from the multiplayer team at Bioware, which I believe was the biggest mistake they could've ever made. And they need to stop with this "Chosen Leader of the Future" main character BS because that seems to be the biggest problem with Bioware's last two games, as well as the unnecessary openness of the areas in their games. Lowkey want them to stick to $15-20 experiences with all Future ME games in the Milky Way pre-Reapers after this game.
